Young Medical Doctor Du Juan Died as a Result of Torture Suffered in Chongqing Women's Labor Camp
(Clearwisdom.net) Ms. Du Juan was a medical doctor at the Shaping Oil Field Employee Hospital in Yubei District, Chongqing City. After four years and six months of torture suffered at the labor camp, her spleen, lungs and liver were all badly damaged. Du Juan died on April 14, 2006 at the age of 29.
In 2000, Ms. Du was illegally arrested and sent to a labor camp where she was detained for one-and-a-half years. The hospital party secretary Zhou and hospital director were responsible for her illegal arrest. On March 25, 2002, Du Juan was again arrested, this time by the Longxing Police. She was sent to Chongqing Women's Labor Camp, where she was persecuted for three years. In order to resist the persecution, Ms. Du shouted Dafa truth-clarification messages, erased slandering words on the blackboard, and refused to wear the prison uniform. The police instructed criminals to stuff her mouth with dirty cloths and tape it, slap her face with the sole of shoes, strip off her civilian clothes and put a uniform on her. They also tied her up and exposed her to the scorching sun for hours.
In May 2002, in order to increase the so-called "transformation" rate, the labor camp specifically transferred several vicious male thugs from Xishanping Men's Labor Camp to persecute practitioners. Thug Li Bin slapped Du Juan's face dozen times. As a result, her face became swollen and deformed. Criminal inmates Ma Lan and Zheng Xiuqin once kicked Du Juan's abdomen, causing her unbearable pain. Then the police threw her into a confinement cell and ordered six criminals to watch her around the clock.
The confinement cell was filled with foul air. It was cold and damp in the winter and hot and humid in the summer. There was only a barrel for Du Juan to use as a toilet. Once the lid of the barrel was lifted, the whole room was filled with a stench beyond description. Anyone would have difficulty breathing after staying in that room for only a couple of minutes. Du Juan could not get to sleep due to the sharp pain in her abdomen. On June 12, 2002, her abdominal pain got worse and she could not even straighten her back. The police saw that she refused to answer roll call, so they continued to torture her. As a result, Du Juan lost consciousness. Only then did the police send her to the hospital. She was diagnosed with injury to her left kidney and spleen, as well as injury to her intestines. Afraid of taking responsibility should she die, the police released her that same night.
At that time, Du Juan was beyond recognition. Her face was swollen and her entire body was covered with bruises and wounds. She had to bend her back while taking very small steps. On June 15, 2002, in order to cover up their crimes, the police arrested her again and forcibly sent her to Heping Hospital for treatment. After one week, when Du Juan's condition got a bit better, the police threw her back into the labor camp.
Another method the police used to torture Du Juan was to prohibit her from bathing. In the hot summer, for two months, they did not allow her to shower even once. Every day she was given only a basin of water with which she rinsed her mouth, washed her face and body, as well as her clothes. Every day the amount of water given dwindled. Once a criminal monitoring her gave her a bit more water than usual and that person was scolded by the guards. Du Juan's bed sheet was soaked by her sweat, but she couldn't wash it. Her hair all stuck together but she couldn't shampoo it. Her whole body smelled badly.
Du Juan was also forced to stand or squat in fixed positions for up to 17 and 18 hours a day. As a result, her feet were swollen all year long. Later, her entire legs were swollen. She couldn't put her feet in her normal size shoes.
Since violence was not able to "transform" Du Juan, the police then resorted to hypocrisy and mental torture. They cut off all the communication practitioners had with the outside world. No family visits, no mail, and no phone conversations were allowed. There was a period of time when the police did not even allow Du Juan to talk to the person sharing the same room with her. On top of that, two groups of collaborators and some police officers bombarded her with abusive language. Du Juan once took a deviated path due to the pressure, but she quickly realized her mistake. After she resumed Dafa cultivation, the police engaged a so-called "entire isolation management," not allowing her to go downstairs for seven months. They even ordered a tuberculosis patient to monitor her. Soon Du Juan also contracted tuberculosis. She had a continuous fever and difficulty breathing. Her spleen, lungs and liver were all badly damaged. Only then did the police agree to release her. After Ms. Du returned home, the local police still frequently harassed and monitored her. She was forced to leave home. Du Juan passed away on April 14, 2006.
